The Green Fairy Takes Flight at Sydney’s New Absinthesalon

Santa Teresa – off the tourist track

... the tram to a stop by tugging the blue cord overhead, and jump off in front of the castle. From here it is a short walk to some more good eating and drinking options. For healthy, organic snacks, there’s a pocket-sized cafe called Ora Pra Nobis. Pretty much next door is Bar do Bonde – a cosy three-level bar with snug sofas, cheap prices and very good Arab food.

Starting on April 17th and ending on May 3rd, the Frühlingsfest will be home to over 100 rides, various beer tents, and live music, all on the too familiar grounds of the Theresienwiese. Go buy some tracht and hop on the U4/U5 to the Theresienwiese U-Bahn stop. I would highly suggest the Wiesn, Tracht und...
